FASHION – BODY – CULT — MODE – KÖRPER – KULT
A new publication from Arnoldsche Verlagsanstalt looks at fashion from fundamentally different positions in an effort to highlight and explain the current profusion of styles and modes. The book is as hefty as it is innovative. Within a time frame starting in the 19th Century up to current developments, some twenty authors examine theoretical issues raised by fashion, as well as those of representation and performance.
Rarely have creators, artists and academics met in such an extensive way. The conference showcased fashion as a medium of communication that can facilitate exchanges between highly distinct disciplines and fields of endeavor.
This richly illustrated publication provides captivating reading for insiders and anyone interested in fashion.
320 pages, 16 x 25 cm, more than 200 color illustrations | Text in German and Englisch.
